no direct3d error

It says in spanish that there is no Direct3d device detected. Damnit. I even run World of Warcraft without any problems today (at 1st try1!!!) but it uses OpenGL.. Any idea how to get Direct3D to work? I tried changing options in winecfg but it does not help :/. i Have Wine 0.9.9 on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn. Please help!
NWN2 version 1.04.870 works on SuSE 10.2.

Got it working with full 3d. Pretty impressive. The movies play better here than they did on my win2k install, and the 3D parts are very playable. Not sure how to view my frames per second display yet, but it feels smooth and is very playable.
Win Version: win98, 2000, or XP all work for me.
Lib Overrides: devenum, dxdiagn
Graphics: 1024x768 desktop
Pixel Shaders: on
Audio: Alsa, full, 22050, 8bit/sample (some might
need emulation. I didn't.)
1: Backup and delete your old .wine directory.
2: Run winecfg to set up the settings above and
create a new fresh ~/.wine dir.
3: run "regedit" and add the key:
4: copy devenum.dll and dxdiagn.dll to:
5: Install NWN2. (I copied all CDs to a directory first)
6: Copy d3dx9_30.dll, devenum.dll, dxdiagn.dll,
msvcp80.dll, msvcr80.dll to nwn2 install directory.
7: copy game patches into nwn2 install dir:
8: "cd" to nwn2 dir and run "wine NWN2Launcher.exe"
9: Click update and let it finish. Click done.
10: Click update again and let it finish. Click done. Game
should now be updated to newest version.
12: Rename nwn2main.exe and nwn2main_xp.exe to nwn2main.exe.bak
and nwn2main_xp.exe.bak, respectively.
11: Copy nocd patched nwn2main.exe, and nwn2main_xp.exe for
game version 1.04.870 to nwn2 directory.
12: Run the game.
13: In game options, turn off shadows and object highlighting.
14: Play the game. The end.
Worked for me. Your mileage may vary.
Note: People getting the "No Direct3D" warning need to turn on GLSL in the wine registry.
